ULTRASONE NEW ANNOUNCED HEADPHONE Signature Pro - Page 112

post #1666 of 2085

So I'm considering the Edition 8...............but want your input on COMFORT compared to the Signature Pro.  Ideally some of you guys who've had both could weigh in (Cavalli Audio? I believe he had the Ed 8's). 

 

Had the Pro's but after a bit the pads just were not very comfortable.  Like 45 minutes it was time to remove them.  Awesome sound and loved the portability aspect but.......................

I have 3 ULS : ed 8 Rithenium
Sig Pro
Sig DJ

IMO Pro and DJ is more comfortable for me compare to Ed 8
Because Ed 8 is over the ear and press my ears more than these two Pro and DJ

Thanks Rudi. Not what I expected to hear. Anyone else?

Do you consider the Signatures as on ear then? For me they are over the ear too.

Did you ever consider of changing the pads on the Signatures? They are the same style as the Hfi 780. And there are some people that modified them for more comfort.

If the Signature line isn't over ear, then I don't know what is.  They are one of the deeper and more spacious closed headphones I can recall wearing.

The ED8 has a more pronounced oval shape that I felt conformed better to my ears, so I might give them a slight edge on comfort, but I consider the Sig DJ to be extremely comfortable.

Funnily enough I too had a comfort issue with the Sig Pros. My ears would press into the drivers over time to an uncomfortable extent. Had to return them. A shame.

Exactly.  I have a pair of Pro900's that I consider extremely comfy stock (and even better now that I put Alpha pads on it) and the Sig Pro was absolutely not close in comfort.  I tried rope under the pads to no avail.  And worse yet, no way to swap pads (or at least no thread I could find that addressed this).  It is a shame as the sound quality was top notch.   I'm fortunate that I found a trading partner who swapped me a D7000.  Worked out for both of us.

I definitely know that the earpads are indeed removable as Ultrasone sells replaceable earpads on their site (or at least they emailed me that they were planning to adding them to their store), but I don't think there is a thread detailing the process. I know Anak removed them for his Sig Pro vs Sig DJ comparison... I haven't even tried to remove them.. actually I'm a scaredy cat with my headphones and don't like to play with them much! LOL

 

But yeah, I experienced the same thing with the Sig Pros and still do with the Sig DJs but they are not that bad for shorter periods. After a while I have to start re-adjusting...

It is actually quite easy. Not as easy as the PRO SERIES pads. You need to carefully pull the pad sideways and bring it off the edge that holds it. It is flexible enough. Threst is like chaging a bicycle tyre. Please also note that the fabic covering the driver is a seprate part that lies inside the pad.

Ok the Momentums did not work for my ears either. And yes, a AKG K702 or Sennheiser HD650 are much bigger around ones ears as the Signatures.

Being the over-protective person I am, I bought a pelican case for my Sig DJ, and lined it with soft microfiber cloths to avoid any foam abrasion on the headphone's leather. Well the black dye from the cloths leached in to the porous matte white cups of the earphone, and that is not going to come out. 

 

So now, because I took SO good care of my equipment, i have a mint condition Sig DJ with black dye leached into the white earcups. Can't quite describe how infuriating this is. 

 

WASH YOUR MICROFIBER CLOTHS BEFORE USE.
